Editing: Leave it in or take it out

Editing is one of the biggest challenges with family histories. Deciding what should be taken out or what should be left in can be very difficult, especially with very sensitive subjects like addictions and abuse. Here is my opinion about it. I hope it is helpful.

Holiday Time

I love being with family at Christmas time and on other holidays. We have many family gatherings with both sides of the family. I really enjoy sharing family stories and reminiscing during these gatherings. I would suggest that you bring a digital recorder and turn it on when these stories are being told so they can be preserved and shared.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
